Overhang refers to the portion of your roof that extends beyond the walls.

Twelve inch overhang is common, but buildings can have more (up to 24”), less or no overhang. Eave overhang contains vented soffit to increase air flow within the building.

Depending on its purpose (animal housing, heated workshop, etc.), some buildings can require more overhang for added ventilation. During the design process, we can talk with you about how much overhang will be right for your building.

Options for overhang:

building with overhang all side

Overhang on all sides

-Adds to building’s visual appeal

-Eave overhang increases ventilation in your building, gable overhang is primarily for looks

Building with eave overhang

Overhang on eave sides only

-Eave overhang contains vented soffit – this is the most important for ventilation

-This option is slightly less expensive than including overhang on all sides

Building with no overhang

No overhang

-Provides less ventilation for the building, but can save on material and labor costs if ventilation isn’t a concern

-Gutters can be hung on building with no overhang

-This option isn’t recommended for all buildings
